      Estudiantes vs Lanus Predictions


      Estudiantes finished 7th in the expanded 30 team Argentine top flight last season, qualifying for the Copa Sudamerica as a result. That was 6 places and 9 points better off than Lanus who they face on the opening day of this campaign, which has again seen a change in format with the 30 teams this time split into two zones.

      Lanus did make a strong finish to the last season, winning their final 4 games to achieve a top half finish and will fancy their chances of doing a bit better this time around. Their squad has gone through a large overhaul over the summer break with 10 players arriving and 14 departing so they are a bit of an unknown quantity and may take some time to gel.

      Their opponents have at least played in some high-profile summer matches and achieved some good results too so we have a better idea of where they are at. Estudiantes beat Racing and Boca Juniors to lift the Copa de Oro and beat city rivals Gimnasia only last Monday to give themselves the perfect pre-season boost.

      They’ve won their last 3 home matches in the league too and look good value for the win here at 8/11 in the ‘draw no bet’ market.

      Both sides are quite strong at the back and it’s hard to see there being many goals here especially given the meeting between the sides last season ended goalless. Home advantage might give Estudiantes the edge this time and they could sneak a 1-0 win at 11/2.
